    I have figured out my theme-the secret garden- like the animal friends, flowers, the magical aspect of the plant life and who may live there- and of course in the style of how you the artist would visit the garden. Does this make sense?

    people sometimes write their names on the back = :~], sometimes they write a message to you or a story about what they've created for you = ;~], but most of the time they leave it blank = :~[

    Anyone have tips on decorating the outside of the book? The cover is so soft - I almost feel like leaving it as is.

    My moleskin arrived today! Beautiful cover and very inspiring. Yeah, the cover- doing something to the cover- I think after the traveling would better. But will spend time getting to know the paper and such. very cool

    I've painted mine and collaged my covers in the past - the paint will flake off (well mine did and a few other painted ones I've seen - did not gesso first so that could make a difference - it will flake off around the spine

    Collage works well but use gel medium (which will still stick in the hot texas heat) but not as sticky as mod poch - that stuff stays sticky.

    Please remember to use wax paper between pages so they don't stick.

    you can leave the cover till it comes home too if you want.

    I wanted to decorate my cover, but I don't want all those problems to arise. So, I'm thinking that I'm going to do a paper book cover, much like what we used to do to our text books for school. I'll decorate the paper cover and leave the original out side as is.

    That's a good idea Melissa - you can decorate it yourself or people can sign it/decorate it like a cast.

    They make black gesso which might give you different/better results on the black cover.

    My theme last time was Messengers & Messages and I had planned to do secret messages on the cover with black ink & black embossing powder but ran out of time before my first mailing. I think I still want to do that, but haven't gotten to that yet. Nor my last two pages - we had eight people in our group and agreed you could do 3 or 4 pages if you wanted and so everyone ended up with a different number of completed pages.

    Has anyone ever used Turtle Wax on their jounal pages? I saw it on a YouTube video. My moley still has its wax paper in it and its very bulky.

    oh now that it is interesting - Turtle wax - will have to look it up and test it - my part of Texas has been cooler than usual - nice calm rains the last two days - just doesn't happen in July <g> but I'll take it - it's been super nice having the lower temps and not having to water every morning before going to work.

    Sugession: scan or copy everything you do. Last time a couple of the moleys were lost or misplaced. Eventually, they were returned to the owners. It's a scarey feeling to think all that artwork is just gone.

    Thats a great idea to copy it! Things do get lost and that is soooooo sad, particularly with a moley! I have been away for over a week, but managed to work on my moley while traveling. When are we sending out???

    Our good Goatgoddess has the dates on the first page of this 19th moley and it starts Sept 1, 2013- and back home by May 2013- I think that's May 2014. Or this is going to be a very magical moley!

    Okay, I began my moley and she said absolutely no "garden themes" unless the artist would like to- so my theme is.... Artist's Choice.

    I like this idea of the covered book - right now I can't see me doing anything to the dark rich "moleskin" is it really a mole's skin?
